Item Description...
Our community can be restored spiritually and naturally through an unhindered work of the powerful Holy Spirit. We must remove the stumbling blocks that inhibit our calling others to the faith and our growth within the Kingdom. May the reader be moved to heed the call to show the world yet another great work by Christ Jesus, as intractable problems get solved and many who doubted the power will find it irresistible. We can only look upward for our salvation now, tomorrow and forevermore.

Self-Evident Truth Demands Call to Action  Aug 16, 2005
Calling for new moral leadership among Black Americans, the St. Louis graduate scholar challenges all Black clergy to reject complacency in the pulpit regarding personal and collective moral responsibility. Instead, Burton advises fellow clergy to courageously embrace their true freedom and power which comes from God, not only from soliciting politicians.

"Our population stands at 36 million and data shows that 80% of Black Americans claim religious affiliation that is overwhelmingly Christian. Yet statistics show that we are the robbery kings and queens of America, the undisputed leaders in murder internal and external. We are light years away from our moral state of say, 1963."

Burton points to the current moral decline as a cataclysmic trend that undermines not only Black America's foundation of marriage and family, but also their power and influence as a societal group.

While he recognizes the negative affect the popular media has on Black culture, and constantly eroding educational standards, Burton explains that even churches have contributed to the decline. His Moral State of Black America analyzes the ineffectiveness of the Black Church to engage and influence contemporary culture.

"Black clergy and leaders must reject prideful victimology, and celebrity-centered prosperity messages. Our historic struggle as Black Americans does not give us a license to sin!" Burton writes.

Burton also says of "hip-hop intellectual" Michael Eric Dyson, "for all his vast scholarship, Dyson cannot accurately define the African Americans' moral condition. Neither is he prepared to offer any viable solutions to the vast challenges facing the poor, excepting a massive subsidy. Even Dave Chappelle has addressed the most likely outcome of such a scenario through his comedy."

Burton, 36 and a student at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO concludes, "We must show the world another great work by Christ Jesus, as Black America's intractable problems get solved, and many who doubted the power find it irresistible."

Key topics covered in The Moral State of Black America also include: "Media and Cultural Propaganda", "Marriage and Sex Devalued", "The State of Black Clergy", "Morality by Numbers", "Education", "Law and Order", and "The State of the Individual".

Overall, a good read, well-thought out, plus research to back up what he writes.
